            So colorful that it goes with so many outfits. I have a small wrist so I have to be aware of them not to fall off, but they are so beautiful that I don't mind it! I have had some compliments already.

              Bangles are so in right now and a change from wearing my silver bracelets. I bought these bangles because of the colors as I am a coral wearing girl. I wear them when I wear coral or orange. I plan to wear them to a wedding soon. I have a 7"-7 1/2" wrist and these bangles go over my hand easily and are not tight on my wrist.

                  As soon as I received them I put them on and have not removed them. They were slightly tight to get on and leave a grey mark on my arm after using them for a while but they are very cute, feminine and look good for some panache with my work clothes. they can be used in any informal occasion to polish up our look.

                  East-West trade along the Silk Route had a huge influence on Renaissance art in Europe, such as floral motifs borrowed from Chinese porcelain. These metal bangles are part of that cross-cultural tradition. Individual links strung on elastic look like a solid bangle, but have a universal fit.

Our set of mother-of-pearl bangles offers six pastel hues to mix and match or wear as part of an armful. Shell inlaid in brass.

                  This inviting bedding begins as lengths of crisp cotton fabric, laid smooth along a wooden table. Artisans take hand-carved wooden blocks, dip them in indigo-hued dye, and stamp the elaborate pattern one block at a time. It takes up to nine separate blocks to create the multi-layered design. Many of the artisans who work on these pieces own family farms and return to their village during planting and harvest seasons.

                  Hand-block-printing is a tradition that dates back more than five centuries in the northern Indian village of Sanganer, Jaipur. Techniques are handed down from generation to generation, and the process remains decidedly low-tech. Hand-carved teakwood blocks are dipped in natural indigo and gray dyes, then stamped onto lengths of crisp cotton with studied movements. The result is a bold pattern whose irregularities are testament to the hours of handmade artisan involved.

                  An unexpected flash of color is your first clue—there is more to these traditional West African baskets than meets the eye. Using a traditional coiling technique, and working together with other women from their village, rural women from Senegal’s Wolof community braid a thick cattail grass called njodax with strips of recycled plastic. In the past, palm fronds would have been used with the njodax, but for several decades the women have been partial to inexpensive and colorful recycled plastics they can find in the city.
